Nat Cool represents an innovative concept initiated by Niepoort, in which different producers have come together to create light and easy to drink wines. DrinkMe is produced in the Bairrada region, where a different and elegant side of the Baga grape variety is highlighted to create an incredibly light and accessible wine that is just waiting to be enjoyed. The vines are between 40 and 100 years old and are grown on clay-limestone.
The Nat'Cool label can be used freely by other winemakers as long as they respect the rules: natural vinification, no ageing in wooden barrels, light extraction and low alcohol content. In this way, we, as consumers, are assured of maximum drinking pleasure. All wines bearing the label are offered in 1 litre bottles at a reasonable price.
This wine offers an expressive aromatic profile full of freshness and floral notes. It superbly brings out the character of the Baga grape variety and the Bairrada region, with beautiful aromas of strawberries, dried roses and some spices. These notes are part of a minerality reminiscent of the limestone soils of the vines and the Atlantic climate. Fresh, direct and very seductive, this wine is light with a taste of coming back! Serve chilled.
